I just bought an electric car, will I still get the £3500 grant or the reduced £3000 offering?

I signed for an electric car (Nissan Leaf) on 9 March 2020 with an EV Grant of £3500 and I'm due to take delivery on the 16. Will I still get £3500 or will it be £3000?

The dealer will usually submit the paperwork when you sign the purchase order. I imagine this was done on the 9 March, which means you should qualify for the full £3500.
